So much work, Too little time! Until now (soon)
« on: December.06.2018 - 11:28:35 PM »
This year I decided I wanted to make a quality YouTube channel but my work had different ideas. Next year will be different!

Recently I have been working 77+ hours a week!

In 2 or 3 months (Most likely the beginning of February) It will be down to just 15 hours. With basically the same pay.
That difference comes from working for myself instead of working for others.
I could work double and make more but I want to focus on YouTube. (much more enjoyable)

My plan is to work on my channel for 5 or more hours a day.
I don't expect burn out because I am used to working longer hours and when I work on video creation it does not feel like work. Sometimes I will eat dinner around 6pm and next time I look at the clock it is after 10pm and feels like only minutes have passed. I literally have set the alarm clock to remind myself to go to sleep!

I am also changing the format of my videos. Instead of a voice over I will actually host the videos. It will increase their quality, make them more personable and solve the problem of no relevant footage/pictures for (most of) my topics. Hopefully I will be a good host or at least Mildly Entertaining  ;D

I have a lot of stories ready so I will not have to find content just focus on everything else.


Basically I will be doing a 1 year YouTube challenge.
With the overall goal of making enough money to do YouTube full time.
While having fun doing something I love.
Anyone else interested?

Inspired by Travis McP : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NoYOaoVujY
Which was inspired by The Everyday Dad : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqvULRRboZeXVezSm_XduLQ

Another channel that has greatly inspired me and given me a lot of insight and information is:
Story Greenlight : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS4I5wtqpPcGI3VuUnRLBYg

Those three channels were found through the rabbit hole of :
Needs More Subs : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqRmeMuZe8am3rSuEd-CLPg

Seriously thank you Needy!

I believe in what you are doing that is why I take it seriously. It is a really cool concept.

I will keep everyone informed about my channel progress in the months to come.

Keep on doing what you are doing!

I now have the time!

Trying to figure out how I can plan my day effectively. 

Right now just relaxing and all kinds of behind the scenes stuff, testing microphones in the new room, making a new channel intro, making/buying new lights (old ones fell into some water), finding a suitable hat, etc...

Looking forward to getting things started!

Very, very cool ME!!    Does the cost of living where you'll be living make it easier to earn a living on YouTube? 

Still very eager to see your new format and to help you any way we can.

Thank you!

Cost of living is very subjective, and up to personal lifestyles.
But for some reference I could live alone on only $350 a month while eating out at local restaurants for nearly every meal. 
1k a month is more than enough for a small family.


New format/style I would say similar to "Today I found out" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC64UiPJwM_e9AqAd7RiD7JA

In the future some cross promotion/intro swap could be fun I am definitely interested in collabs :D
I figure after 10ish videos.
